Vehicle Crashworthiness Claims

Fighting For The Rights Of Victims In Syracuse


Motor vehicle manufacturers have a responsibility to make sure that their product is safe for drivers and passengers. The vehicle should be safe to drive and everyone in it should have reasonable protection if there is a crash. When manufacturers negligently fail to meet this responsibility, people are seriously injured and killed. The product liability attorneys at Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC holds negligent motor vehicle manufacturers responsible.

It is expected that people will suffer injuries during a motor vehicle accident. But they should not be seriously hurt by the vehicle safety measures designed to protect them. For example, when an airbag deploys, it's reasonable to expect that a person may experience mild neck or back sprain as a result. But in the past, certain airbags shot out pieces of metal when deployed, causing further injury.

Some examples that show vehicles are not crashworthy include:

  • Airbag burns and explosions
  • Tire tread separation
  • Brake failure
  • Defective crumple zones on vehicles
  • Seatbelt failures
  • Roof crush injuries
  • Vehicle manufacturing defects

When vehicles are not crashworthy, the injuries experienced in a crash are much more serious than they should have been. People can suffer catastrophic injuries-such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries-that have a permanent impact on their lives.
